New Cathedral Basankusu, DR Congo

Photos Francis Hannaway

Slowly, but surely a new cathedral arises in the rainforest town of Basankusu, DR Congo, on the spot where once the majestic yellow brick building stood, erected by the early Mill Hill missionaries. Mill Hill associate Francis Hannaway sent this photographic impression of a work in progress.

"Our reconstructed cathedral. The engineer invited me to get a good view … I followed him up the bespoke ladders to the highest point I dared climb to and took some photos at the request of Fr René Graat mhm, in the Netherlands" (Francis Hannaway mhm)
